Stretch marks do not appear when the dermis layer of the skin grows slowly but would suddenly flare up if the dermis layer grows faster. Stretch marks are long and narrow grooves or lines that appear on the skin when the surface of the skin gets stretched suddenly.These marks that are visible on different body parts including stomach, hips, breast, upper arms, thighs, and lower back, mostly affect women and are harmless.Stretch marks are more common when there is a high level of cortisone hormone, weakening the elasticity of the skin.
